Auc­tion lets us all own a lit­tle of Les

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE be­long­ings of comic leg­end Les Daw­son are to go on sale.

For­mer Blan­kety Blank host Les ( above) died of a heart at­tack, aged 62, in 1993, but his pos­ses­sions re­mained in the man­sion he shared with wife Tracy and daugh­ter Char­lotte.

Now the £1mil­lion prop­erty in Lytham, Lancs, has been sold and its con­tents, in­clud­ing Les’s be­long­ings, will be of­fered to fans at a spe­cial sale at a ware­house in Black­pool.

Items set to be sold in­clude the fun­ny­man’s pink, frilly Ital­ian bed, chairs, mir­rors and or­na­ments.

Art­work, in­clud­ing paint­ings by LS Lowry and con­victed arme­drob­ber Larry Rush­ton, will also be amongst the pos­ses­sions.

A spokesman for Fe­b­land Ware­house said: “Les’s house has been sold and we have been en­trusted with the sale of the beloved con­tents.

“We’re sure ev­ery­one would like a lit­tle piece of Les.”
